on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! >>> not a single thing he said is accurate. first of all -- >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for number 1. >> jennifer: congressman ryan could not have been to happy about challenging him on that. congressman ryan voted to authorize $300 million less for embassy security than requested by the obama administration. that's just one of the many misleading statements about foreign policy that emerged from congressman ryan last night. here to help up dissect the truth, former secretary of defense, lawrence corb. so great to have you back. >> nice to be with you. >> ms. cutter criticized governor romney because politicizing the libya attack. >> he spoke out even before libya. he accused obama for apologizing for basically the rise that occurred in egypt, when in fact what the spokesman said is we didn't support that crazy movie that was causing it. so, yeah he did politicize it
debate performance. >> absolutely. the economy is starting to very slowly and tentatively heal. i think things are slowly getting better. but there is not a go-go economy. >> jennifer: right. the bloomberg -- there was a surprise index issued by bloomberg today which says that the economy is improving more than professional forecasters had predicted. let me talk about the book. plutocrats. can you define that? >> i use it to talk about people at the very very top of the distribution, the 0.001%. that in the united states the threshold is making more than $7 million a year. >> jennifer: and the danger? >> two things. first of all to say to people you know, wake up the gap between the people at the very top and everything else is bigger than it has ever been in america. you know, it has -- it is touching the levels it touched in the guilded age. >> jennifer: and implications for the economy? >> the implications for the economy are -- i actually think we don't know for sure yet but what is to me more interesting and more important are the implications for politics.
a response except unchecked fox news might turn it into, quote unquote, fact. the retail is this the economy is headed in the right direction, and that -- and that sadly is a fact you can trust. for some actual analysis and perspective and context, we are going to turn to laura tyson who is the former chair of economic advise source and we are excited because you also current tv's economic advisor. thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room" again. >> thank you jennifer. >> jennifer: so tell me what is your perspective on jack wellish's theory that the bureau of labor statistics is cooking the books? >> it's utter nonsense and it is a charge against some of the most dedicated loyal people in government who spent month after month year after year doing serious statistical work and he is calling their reputation and credibility into question based on nothing. i was responsible for getting those numbers. we got those on a thursday evening at a certain time when the federal reserve got them we had essentially a very short time to analyze them, and write a report,
more organized. but it is an uphill climb because the economy is so tough. it's an uphill climb especially after the debate there was extra local attention on that debate. there was so much residual coverage of that in the local media here that president obama's performance and mitt romney's performance played an especially huge role. >> jennifer: you think because of the local coverage coupled with the national coverage you got really saturated? >> that's absolutely right. it wasn't just the national story, it was local radio and television, and there was a before and after on all of this. >> jennifer: there still is. we're still talking about it too. so tell us about the mood of the conservative -- i know you have a radio show where you have a lot of conservative listeners so i assume they are feeling their oats for mitt romney? feeling really good? >> here is what is worrisome, i sense that the enthusiasm is on romney's side. the organization is on the democratic side, but there is a lot of enthusiasm, not necessarily for mitt romney but for the idea

? the best thing i can do is immediately get a boost in this economy. >> jennifer: the question is -- this is advice with how to deal with student loans. >> right. >> jennifer: how effectively is that of a sell -- and you have -- and if you can answer kind of shortly, because i want to make sure i hear every word of it. >> i understand. i assume the young woman got no comfort from that response. president obama has increased pell grants by 50%, has put $2.5 billion in historically black colleges cut out the middle person, and now deals direct. mitt romney has no record in these areas, and president obama actually does. this is a woman the student, possibly one of the 47% who the governor was just criticizing because she is a student may not be paying federal income taxes, but in his own words is working three jobs. he is just phony. >> jennifer: we're talking on the day before the big vice presidential debate. >> yeah. >> jennifer: the president is going to have another chance with mitt romney next week. but you are good friends with the vice president. wh
